, it appears they have pictures of their suspect. our justice correspondent pete williams has been following the investigation all day. he's in our d.c. newsroom tonight. pete, good evening. >> reporter: brian, good evening. the fbi is pursuing very promising leads. one in particular tonight thanks to the abundance of pictures and videos rounded up in the two days since the bombing. we are getting a close-up look at how the bombs were made. >> guys, guys, guys. no way. >> reporter: the fbi says it is getting exactly what it asked for. pictures from several sources showing someone carrying a heavy backpack or duffel bag and placing it at the spot where one bomb went off. one of the most promising images, they say, comes from a department store surveillance camera high up on a building, able to look down at the crowd. on a day when incorrect news reports of an arrest distracted officials, investigators were working aggressively to discover, find, and interview that person. that's at the scene of the second bombing following the first by about 15 seconds. it's that second spot shown on this pic
that this is not the case. savannah? >> pete williams our justice correspondent. we know you will continue to monitor it. that is a piece of new information that there was another bomb found the charles gate section of boston this morning, but that it was safe ly detonated by authorities and of course we will continue to work to determine what connection it bears and whether this does mean there are potentially accomplices here. as pete reported authorities are concerned about that. the town of boston and community of boston, more than a million people when you count the suburban communities are under lockdown this morning. they have been told by authorities, including this massachusetts governor who came out this morning and addressed the news media to give a message to the community, do not leave your house. public schools are closed in boston. the transit is closed in boston. there's a no-fly zone in effect over the boston metropolitan area. only law enforcement, of course, is able to take to the skies in that area. we have what can only be described as an extraordinary situation in a major american
responses. nbc's pete williams has more on that, and more on how the intense manhunt came to an end on friday. >> reporter: though he lies under guard in a boston hospital in serious condition with gunshot wounds, including one to throat, federal officials say dzhokhar tsarnaev is beginning to respond to a few questions from a team of federal investigators. he is being questioned for brief periods, officials say, because of his condition, and he is responding mostly in writing. but he has difficulty speaking because of his throat wound, which some investigators say could be the result of a suicide attempt. newly released video from police helicopter shows how he was arrested. an armored vehicle with a robotic arm tore away a tarp covering a bet on a backyard trailer where he was hiding friday night. in this thermal image, the heat from his body clearly shows him lying in the boat. agents threw in small stun grenades, and a short time later he was under arrest. police radio relayed the word. >> subject in custody. >> reporter: boston transit police put the cuffs on his wrists, tariki
that debris. let's go to pete williams. with a good afternoon to you, pete, let's talk first about the status of the charges in this case and what the likely charges will be. >> yes, i think the odds are pretty good that we'll see these charges in the next couple of hours. they're putting the final touches on them now. and we expect to learn a little more about what the fbi has assembled based on its investigation of the bombing. so perhaps there will be some new details that we'll get. in terms of the charges, i would think at the very least they'll charge him with the bombing, with a terrorism offense for that. and interestingly enough, under the federal statutes, which apply here, use of a weapon of mass destruction, which is the federal law version of what a bomb is, if death results, then that is a capital offense. the government could seek the death penalty. massachusetts is a state that does not have the death penalty. so the only death-eligible charge here would be the federal offense, even though four people were killed, the government alleges, the three victims of the. bog and the c
's not going to happen. >> all right, pete williams tonight, thank you. >>> as authorities search for answers, they are turning more of their attention to a trip the older brother made last year to the russian republics of chechnya and dagestan, both mainly muslim, both with militant separatist movements. tonight nbc's adrian mong is in dagestan in the neighborhood where some of the suspect's family lives. >> reporter: a long way from boston in this remote mountainous city in dagestan in the northern caucasus, relatives and friends of the suspected bombers are in shock over the news that two of their own may have been responsible for the marathon bombings. "i don't believe it but only allah knows," says an uncle of the brothers. tamerlan tsarnaev visited him when he traveled to dagestan last year. in the neighborhood where tamerlan and dzhokhar's father lives, the same sentiment. neighbors here on the street tell us they have a hard time believing what happened because they say the suspect's father is a good man. but the neighbors also say they haven't met the sons. dagestan is the russian fe
investigator reporter pete williams. i don't think he takes a day off. and boston police commissioner ed davis and peter gammons will also join us. bill has our forecast now. >> all eyes on the midwest over the weekend. the heavy rains from last week caused epic flooding and in some cases even record flooding. six states dealt with major flooding problems including michigan, illinois, indiana, and as we went through areas of missouri and even iowa, unfortunately, three people did perish from rapidly rising floodwaters this weekend. a lot of the rivers did crest and they are slowly going to be going down from here. the one exception the illinois river. you can see just thousands and thousands of people were sandbagging all weekend long trying to keep these rivers from flooding their towns. the mississippi river is the biggest river in town in our country and it's at major flood stage. anywhere from outside of the border with iowa and illinois there around the squad cities southward is where it's cresting as i speak and will crest later this afternoon a little further south down in this region.
's unable the to talk. our justice correspondent, pete williams, is standing by for us in d.c. pete, we'll get to the throat in just a moment. first, though, any late word on when those charges could come down? >> as a matter of fact, i just checked, craig, and there's still no decision on whether they'll be filed today or tomorrow. we originally expected them yesterday. there was some indication they might be filed then. we expect them today, but they may or may not be filed. they're still working on them. there's still some questions about material that they're trying to include in the court documents, so i think the answer is we just don't need. >> pete, typically in documents like the formal charging documents, what do we get? what more are we going to learn from those documents? >> well, we'll get the list of criminal charges on which he will be held. now, this is a two-step complaint -- a two-step process in the federal system. you first file this complaint, which is the reason that you're holding them, why they're under arrest. and later on, there'll be an indictment. so the list
'll get to nbc justice correspondent pete williams. as i turn to you, this news conference is going on, we know that officials did conduct two bomb sweeps in the area yesterday, one before the race and then one around the finish line they said about an hour before runners started to cross the finish line. what else can you tell us? >> despite the confusion overnight, they did not find more than two bombs, the two that went off, the confusion comes from the fact that as the bombs went off, people dropped packages they were holding and ran away. when police arrived on scene, they had all of these packages they had to check. they didn't take a lot of time. they simply destroyed them if there were any questions. some confusion last night that there were some unexploded devices. now they say that's not the case. as for revere, an apartment belonging to a student here who was 20 years old from saudi arabia, he was seen running from the scene, authorities say they did not find anything that search to indicate that he had any involvement in the bombing. he's been questioned all night. the interest
. this morning fbi agents are making significant progress. pete williams is nbc's just correspondent. pete. good morning. >> good morning, matt. the fbi is very eager to identify, find and talk to two young men who displayed the behavior they're looking for, someone who walks up to the spot, leaves a backpack away and walks away just before one of the bombs goes off. the fbi says it has pictures from several different sources showing the same thing happening at the spot where one of the bombs exploded. the sequence of explosions, 13 seconds apart can be heard on this videotape of universal sports network technicians making final preparations to cover the end of the marathon event. a key image investigators say was captured by a surveillance camera with a bird's-eye view mounted high up across the street from the second bombing site. officials say it shows a young man talking on his cell phone who sets down what appears to be a heavy backpack and dashes away moments before the second bomb goes off. because he was on a cell phone, investigators are checking the logs of the hundreds of people using

if he wants one? >> well, i trust what pete williams says on these things and there is a period of time, 36 to 48 hours. it's somewhat fudgible. it will defend when aware enough and coherent enough to begin to answer questions. but remember, the exception is about imminent threat. does he know of any other terrorist plots? has he planted any other devices? it's about the immediate safety and security of american citizens. and once law enforcement has concluded that is not an issue anymore based on his questions, they'll then move on to what will be the traditional questioning and interrogation within the constructs of the civilian law system. >> that's to figure out what went down in all this, but how do investigators begin determining whether or not they were part of a larger terrorist organization? >> well, as we've heard earlier, the high value interrogation group is comprised of an interagency group of individuals with tremendous experience in interrogating and questioning individuals like tsarnaev who is in custody right now. they will begin that process. they'll certainly find oth
. >> lester in boston thank you so much. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams following overnight developments in the investigation. pete, good morning. it seems there is no clearer picture as to who may be behind this. >> i think that's certainly true although there is high hope that they will be able to answer that shortly. they know for certain the attack involved two bombs, but many other packages found on the street were deemed suspicious and destroyed and that took a lot of time last night. there were many packages to check because after the explosions officials say many people simply dropped what they were carrying and ran, leaving their packages behind. there were conflicting accounts whether investigators found two unexploded bombs. this morning a senior law enforcement official says there were no unexploded devices, just the two that went off. several officials say the bombs that went off included shrapnels to multiply the injuries, bebes and ball bearings. investigators are investigating video to see if they can see individuals placing the packages. there is a video fro
that pete williams from nbc news was insistent all the way through, that his law enforcement sources, which, of course, are impeccable were saying that there was not a suspect in custody. what was going on yesterday and what continues to go on today is that authorities have pored through the video and pictures have been coming in over the last three days trying to pinpoint exactly where those two packages were placed before they went off. now, authorities do acknowledge to nbc news that they have identified by sight a person who is seen placing either a backpack or a duffel bag on to the ground in the place where the second bomb went off in the moments leading up to that explosion. however, according to nbc news, that person has not been identified by name. they just see him on the tape and are working to identify him. he certainly has not been arrested or put into custody. police continue their work today to try to figure out exactly who that person is. last night, the fbi was planning to have one of their twice daily media briefings around 8:00 local time. that was canceled. and so we're
. >> bringing in pete williams into the discussion. i want to start with the images, the first one lester showed u. us, the immediate aftermath, from across the street, looking down. you will see a man in black, his clothing has been shredded, running from the scene. are investigators looking at that? this is not the one okay, here is the one we are talking about. our invest gators looking at him running to or away from terror? >> i would say running away. with a window over the finish line, we saw this man. can you see the impact of the blast partially ripped his clothes away. now, the same thing was said about this exchange student. we are not sure -- it could be the exchange student, they are not sure. if any event, the fbi no longer considers him, they think he was just a victim. >> and the mail box, there is a package, a bag at the foot of that mail box, we zoom in on that one. and the immediately aftermath of the explosion. it looks like it took place almost exactly in that spot. what you are hearing from invest gators from this? >> they have other pictures that show the same thing. the q
doing the same sort of rushing to get the information. so who do you trust in this story? pete williams who is doing what? calling people on the phone and talking to sources. again, back to your gumshoe way. >> we are the twitter generation. we are not satisfied just watching events unfold. we are participating in those events. that means that many of us are participating in those events in bad ways. we are profiling innocent bystanders, we're profiling based on the color of their skin, using social media to spread hate and suspicion. eric rush tweeted after the bombing, muslims are evil, let's kill them all. it's been used in this way. but many more people i have seen have found community and unity and expressed a commitment to diversity online. >> i want to take one step back and say, look, the crowd sourcing of this operation was very successful. the big risk when you surface pictures, you will have vigilanteism. we don't underestimate that. largely around the country, they were very responsible on that. on the big things, not the rumors online, but on the big things, i would say a b
how to proceed. matt? >> pete williams, thank you very much. edward davis, commissioner of the boston police department, joins us now. commissioner, nice to see you. good morning. >> good morning, matt. >> you've got a suspect in the hospital in critical, but stable, condition. unable to speak, but answering preliminary questions in writing. based on those early answers, are you 100% confident there is no future or further threat to boston in terms of accomplices or unexploded devices? >> this is very early in the investigation. we're satisfied that the two main actors, the people that were committing the damage out there, have been either captured or killed. there's still an open question as to exactly what happened in this investigation and there are enormous investigative resources being poured into that right now. we can't say with 100% certainty that -- anything actually at this point. >> do you know if this suspect has in any way given any indication of what the motive was for these attacks? >> no. it would be impossible for me to discuss anything about the suspect or the invest
